Add new modes

Hi,

Could/would you add some new modes to the preference-band-frequencies tab? With the newer digital mode, like FT8, it seems impossible for the DX Cluster and DXCC statistics to properly recognize when you have worked an entity on a given band using a digital mode other than RTTY. For example, I have worked an entity on a given band using FT8, but the program sees that segment of the band as RTTY and any spot in DX Cluster on the normal FT8 segment of the band gets flagged as unworked/needed. Seems like FT8 would fall in the DIGI mode, but it doesn't seem to do that.

HI!
Quick check:
That would need database cqrlog_common's table "bands" extension.
Then it needs changes on preferences/bands/frequencies (form fFreq) for setting new values.

But that would be just the input and store changes needed.
Bigger job is to clear out all other things that are using cqrlog_common.bands information and do changes there.

Possible, and maybe welcome, upgrade but it needs long, cold, dark, snowy winter days, hi.

Hi Saku!

Sounds like a bit of work. If I only knew Pascal. It's been many, many years since I've even looked at any Pascal. Like pre Linux days...

Yes, I think it would be a welcome feature. Snow is something we don't see a lot of here. Ice is usually what we get.
